Dupaco R.W. Hoefer Foundation College Scholarship Program

This year, the Dupaco R.W. Hoefer Foundation College Scholarship Program awarded fifteen $2,000 nonrenewable college scholarships in 2019.

Ten $2,000 scholarships were awarded to first-time, full-time incoming freshman who will be attending an accredited four-year college or university. Five $2,000 scholarships were awarded to first-time, incoming students who will be attending an accredited community college, trade school or technical college for a degree, diploma or certificate. And thanks to Credit Union Student Choice, Dupaco's education finance partner, a 16th scholarship was made available.

Scholarship applications were judged on scholastic standing, extracurricular activities, financial need, and a creative piece. There were two options on the creative piece; applicants may only choose one:

Written essay: Entrants must submit an original, typed, 500-word essay addressing this year's topic.
Creative video: Entrants must submit a 150- to 180- second in length, original video illustrating this year's topic.

2019 scholarship topic: How has technology impacted the way you learn about money and finances? Outside of Dupaco, what digital service, company or product has had an impact on you as a student as well as a consumer? Please include what impresses you about the service and why.

It's great that these scholarships are offered! I would suggest that you consider offering scholarships to students attending 2 year schools or trade programs as well, since we've been seeing lately, they are a better post high school option for many people. It also makes good financial sense to attend a two year community college and then transfer to a four year school, and being money savvy and frugal deserves rewards as well.
